Monticello & Rensselaer, Indiana


When Northern Indiana Power Service Company committed to spend more than a billion dollars to modernize and replace essential parts of their aging energy infrastructure, Sargent Electric Company was the obvious choice for electrical construction and installation.

The 69kV Line Construction project involved the replacement of 550 wood transmission line poles with upgraded steel poles.  The project also included reconductoring.

Our team completed the following work:

  • spread existing conductors on poles to be replaced
  • framed and installed new poles
  • transferred conductors, statics and optical ground wire to new poles
  • transferred distribution

Sargent’s involvement will provide significant benefits to businesses and homes throughout northern Indiana.  These improvements will enhance safe, efficient, and reliable service to NIPSCO’s customers.


Sargent has successfully completed 90 projects within the past decade with NIPSCO including extensive experience at Michigan City Generating Station in Michigan City, Indiana; Bailly Generating Station in Chesterton, Indiana; and R.M. Schahfer Generating Plant in Wheatfield, Indiana.
